Especially for our little ones
Preschoolers, Junior, and Senior Infants are Tots at ITW. Tots take a minimum of two 30 minute classes per week (though many take 3!) in dance, drama, ballet, and singing.

What to wear
Tots classes named after colours wear the ITW uniform of an ITW T-Shirt and Hoodie worn with black
leggings/tracksuit bottoms and plimsolls or dance shoes. The tee is the same colour as the class name (ex. Tots Purples wear purple ITW tees).
